One of my favorite pictures....now darkened with age but still a favorite of mine. I can still remember seeing this years ago in an antique store.... and immediately loving it. The people and the trees looked as real as could be, as if they were real. It spoke to me...and hubby bought it on the spot. It is quite large..about 4 foot by 3 foot? Thank you Marie for putting a name to this wonderful print! It is called 'Pilgrims Going to Church' painted by George Henry Boughton.~~~Happy Valentine's Day! We've spent a lazy, relaxing day at home today. I watched 'Larkrise to Candleford' season 4 on You Tube. I enjoyed it SO much...can't give blanket endorsement of course, but oh my what a beautifully done grand finale! Not for sale here untill April.
I am memorizing Psalm 130....and have the first 6 verses done. What a blessing!
Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD. Lord, hear my voice; let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.
If thou LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?
But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.
I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning; I say, more than they that watch for the morning.
Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.
And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities."
